Hi Paul.
I don't have a Xerox, but my previous HP and Samsung and current Samsung have on-screen Windows-configurable settings for adjusting darkness etc.
Open Start>Control Panel>Printers and Devices
Right-click the XEROX icon and choose Settings.
Browse through the menu pages until you see a page with similar to the screenshot.
May be called Advanced.
Darkness should be normal, or if still showing, try light.
ECO mode should be On.
That fact that other printers are not printing the noise means that the current user-settings of your XEROX are too dark, thus reproducing the pixels of the signature graphic.
If you selected a pixel near the signature and analysed it in MS Paint, you'd probably find that the 24-bit RGB value is not pure white 255.255.255 but maybe a few steps darker, say 254,254,254.
To the human eye this would be hardly noticeable, but the printer may be darkening the pixels even more, causing the noise.
I wish you luck in your noiseless quest.

Even with new ink cartridge printer prints light

Double click Control Panel.
Double click Printers and Faxes.
Right click your printer and select properties. Now on General tab select "Printing Preferences".

Now select the basics tab and click "Advanced features" found on the right of the page.
Here you will be able to adjust the amount of ink that is used to print a page. Side the bar to the right to increase/darken the print.

Now click OK, followed by Apply.

Take care!

MFC-6800 prints very very dark as printer gets warmer

It sounds to me that you are not using paper that is for Laser printers. Sounds like you have what is called thermal paper. If you hold a piece of this paper over a light bulb and it turns dark then it is thermal paper. Try using paper for laser printers only.

hope this helps

Printer is dark

Go to Start > printers and faxes> right click on the laserjet4 icon>
properties > click on printing preferences on the first page > click advance on the next page > under Graphics, you will see print quality. Change it to either 600x600 or 1200x1200. The higher the number, the darker the print.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe
